Finding housing in Truckee can be very challenging, but there are resources to help. Landing Locals works with property owners to utilize their second homes (that would otherwise sit vacant). Specializing in long-term housing for locals, Landing Locals matches vetted, locally employed tenants with a long-term rental.
The Mountain Housing Council has a Resources for Renters page with several resources to help find housing.
Turn Your Vacation-Home into a Long Term Rental
By renting out your house when you are not using it, you can help strengthen the community you love. By unlocking existing housing for the local workforce you are helping to maintain a thriving middle class and stable, healthy workforce. Programs available include:
- Town of Truckee Workforce Rental Grant Program: Launched August 15, 2021 with the goal of unlocking existing housing stock for the local workforce. The program includes a set of incentives for homeowners that shift from renting their home short-term — or not renting at all — to 3 month+ lease arrangements with locally employed tenants. Participating and qualifying homeowners will receive up to a $10,000 grant and free tenant-matching services from Landing Locals.
- Truckee Tahoe Workforce Housing Agency: Provides housing opportunities to the employees of member agencies including: Tahoe Forest Hospital District; Tahoe Truckee Unified School District; Truckee Donner Public Utility District; and Truckee Tahoe Airport District.
- Landing Locals: Connects homeowners with local employees through their trusted online platform so you can earn stable monthly income from your property. Landing Locals has also partnered with both the Town of Truckee and Truckee Tahoe Workforce Housing Agency on their programs.
